There's a huge difference between journalism and 'documentaries'. Either way, both need to get prior permission from the U.S. government before they even think about crossing that border. I'm certain that Moore, even with all the crap he's pulled before, had he gone through the proper channels, could have gotten proper permission. But he didn't. Now he has to pay his dues, just like the rest of us who break laws. Just because he has a cause, doesn't make Moore exempt, whether or not you or I agree with him.
